I am considering getting this game, but need answers to the following:

I can get my hands on a German version, but is there actually any language content in the game beyond the rules?
I would love to play this with my 8-year old. Is that possible, or is the game too complex?

Thanks for your replies.

The rules are the only language dependent thing in this game.

Your son might like it. I think it is a bit too fiddly. If he likes "cool" components, he might also enjoy the features in this game.

Hi,

the complete material is shown in this picture at my website:

http://www.erlkoenig.ws/hrrg/website/home/receiver.php?do=Sh...

There is no text on the component itself but there are several scenarios (each one a game for itself) described in german.

And - do not hesitate to contact me directly on any issue either here or via www.erlkoenig.net - I am always eager to support anybody buying my games :-)

Best Regards
Heinrich

Excellent Heinrich,

perhaps you can tell me if there's a pdf or other online version of the rules in English? I did buy the German version, as it was on sale, but my German is terrible, so I'm pretty sure I'll get something wrong if I try playing with my own personal translation

"Fiddly" is one of those keywords on BGG that doesn't really mean much. People seem to use it whenever they don't enjoy a game, but just because a game isn't your thing, that doesn't mean there's anything necessarily "fiddly" about it.

I think any kid could understand Technowitches really easily. Especially since the game teaches everyone how to play it in four increasingly complex game variants. I've played it with very young children and they picked it up easily. It's one of my favorite truly All Ages games and the rules do a terrific job of simulating a racing dynamic.

Anyone can learn this game and be playing it in minutes, including kids (and even thick-headed non-gamers).
